Microfiction Monday #69 & #23

It's that time again, Microfiction Monday:


It was embarrassed. Hands in its face all the time. It was praying no one would notice that its 7 was really an upside down 2.

Here's the twenty-third picture:


Here's my response:

It was the smile that crewed a thousand ships.
It was the smile that screwed a million sailors.
It wasn't the smile she saw in the mirror.

LOL Funny. I noticed that about the 7 myself. Had to look twice to make certain the clock wasn't upside down.

I, too, notice that about the 7. What font is that? Clever caption.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Aw, poor thing. I like 2 twice. ;)

Never been a fan of those 'upside down 2' sevens...not a fav font! Hope you have a fantastic week! :>

I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one to catch that particular typographic anomaly.

Rinkly Rimes said...

Oh yes! And the 2 is an upsidedown 7 as well!

Oh dear, you did notice!
Guess I am the only one who did not notice it earlier, or pretended not to in order to spare the clock from further embarassment...haha!

Nice personification of the clock. Poor guy...so self-conscious!

I never realized the sad life of a clock. I feel so bad, now, for staring at it every afternoon about closing time.

Thanks again.
